We couldn't believe the value and experience received for the cost. We were sure it would be twice as much as it was and if it had been we wouldn't have been able to stay. We are so grateful such an amazing hotel is available at such an amazing cost. We will be staying here all the time.

I've stayed at the Ranch five times in the past two years and watched its progress to completion. The finished product is top notch. The resort with its canyon location and full amenities provides a quiet retreat in an otherwise crowded and fast paced Southern California area. The staff is enthusiastic and very attentive to guest needs

Stayed there exactly 1 year ago and was an almost completed work in progress. As to be expected they had some issues, but they have resolved them. The brand new lobby/restaurant building is very nicely done, food was killer (and the exec chef is so young!), and everybody was exceedingly pleasant. A much needed addition was the free Coast Hwy...

Front desk and pool staff not in tune with quality expected. Towels in room were dirty. I should have been given new towels right then and there. This is simply not acceptable from such a pricey place!

They helped me set up my room and provided the perfect setting to ask my girlfriend to marry me. The feeling of being in the mountains yet at the beach is amazing. The staff is very kind and accomadating, and the food was wonderful.

We lucked out getting a corner room overlooking pool with canyon view with only one week notice but probably due to mid-week visit. (We like going off season to Laguna to beat crowds). We enjoyed hiking the Valido trail nearby which provides an interesting view of the coastline and canyon/ranch. We didn't do room service but enjoyed dinner at the...

Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas.

Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar. Spanning over 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including four treatment rooms and a 24 hour fitness center, Sycamore Spa captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle.
